Abstract:

In this paper we examine a multi-product, multi-machine, 2-echelon scheduling problem. First, a heuristic approach to solving the problem is developed then a series of parameter conditions are specified which, if met, result in the heuristic providing a feasible solution if one exists and an optimal solution if one exists. Several extensions of the problem are discussed. Finally, solution approaches for other parameter conditions are discussed. Author
